I am writing my master thesis. Can I put my research paper data in this thesis? The research paper had been accepted in IEEE conference. Is it ethical to put research paper data as it is. As this is my work, so can I use it ?

There are two concerns here:

  1. Does the publisher of your previously published work object to your reusing the material in your MS thesis? This should be addressed in any copyright transfer agreement that you signed. Most publishers are actually OK with students doing this but a few are not.

  2. Does your institution allow students to reuse material from their published research papers in theses? Some institutions have rules against this.

You'll need to check on both of these issues.
